Daley Center (Daley Center) now through May 18, 2023. Acceptable donations include leashes, collars, toys, blankets and puppy food. Items are being collected in Suite 1203 of the Daley Center

WHEN: Donation Drive | Now – May 18, 2023

WHERE: Richard J. Daley Center | 50 W. Washington | Suite 1203

DETAILS: The City of Chicago takes in thousands of unwanted animals every year. CACC protects public safety and ensures the humane care of animals through sheltering, pet placement and education. The PBC is helping to increase awareness about the CACC’s immediate need for supplies and promote the great animals who are available for adoption. On May 18th, CACC staff will be at the Daley Plaza’s Farmer’s Market to further boost awareness of National Rescue Day.

“Studies have shown that pets can decrease stress, improve health and even help children with their emotional and social skills,” Carina E. Sanchez, PBC’s Executive Director said. “As a pet owner, I know firsthand the joy animals can bring to your life and we at the PBC are honored to partner with CACC to find great homes and give these pets the opportunity to become beloved.”

If individuals are unavailable to bring items to the Daley Center, support can also be given through the CACC Amazon Wish List https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/depts/cacc/supp_info/wish_list.html
